Gibson and Dent Family Query In a family genealogy book that was
printed out by Ozark Heritage Press and the Dent County Historical
Society ( I think that is correct ? ) on several Dent and Gibson
Families...they list several individuals i am researching: ( 1 ).
Mary C. Sherrill who married Walter Dent...had one son John Dent AND (
2 ) John William Gibson who marries Mary C. Sherrill Dent after Walter
dies. They were married in St Francios County in 1855.
Query: Is there any records that you have that can determine if this
John William Gibson is the same as the John W Gibson who's family is
shown as In the 1850 Census in Washington Co., Mo there are James and
Mary Gibson( spelled Gipson) sons : John W. Gibson, James M
Gibson, Levi Gibson, and David Valentine Gibson.
Possible Connection: A John W. Gibson, Levi Gibson and David Valentine
Gibson all get married within a few years of each other in St Francios
A James M. Gibson and a John W. Gison migrate to Parker County Texas in
and around 1860-70. It is a fact that John Dent migrates with his
mother Mary and stepfather John W. Gibson to Parker Co. , Texas.
I'm trying to connect this family. if anyone has information they
might share, I would appreciate a heads up !
Thanks, Fred Gibson

Researcher: Woody Lee Franklin
Seeking information on Francis Marion "Jack" Roberts who was alleged to
have been "ambushed" in Apr 1863 on Pidgeon Creek on the property of a
Mr. White who buried him where he fell.
I am assuming that Pidgeon Creek is in Dent Co. as other researchers
show his death being in Dent Co. Where is Pidgeon Creek?
Any information would be appreciated.
Any info on William Brown Hogan (1853-1919) married Miranda Lucy
Catherine Reeves (1861-1940). Both I think moved to Dent/Phelps, and
had William Madison "Matt" Hogan in February 1883.
Matt married 1st a Minnie Esther Hogan (father was David Franklin
Hogan, mother was Harriet Jane Enloe) and between 1919 and 1920,
divorced. He then married an Alice Plank. (we have pictures of their
daughter, Lois Plank)
Last summer, my wife and I visited Dent County for
the purpose of genealogical research. My ggg-grandparents, James
Thaxton Dennis and Lucinda Hunter, lived there. We had the opportunity
of visiting with Ken Fiebelman(?) who provided a lot of information in
my efforts. Before leaving, we visited Mount Hermon Cemetery when James
and Lucinda are supposed to be buried. We searched, searched, and
searched some more for their graves, but, could not find them. Many of
the headstones are old and could not be read. We did find a grave of
his son, James Madison Dennis, as well as a couple daughters. If anyone
knows where the graves are located, I would appreciate it if you could
take a picture of them for my research.
I am searching for the parents of Minnie
May Cofman (Cranmer?), who was the granddaughter of Charles D. Cranmer and Hannah Rouse Cranmer.
According to the family Bible she was born March 18, 1879. Based
upon the Bible entry, I don't know if Cofman was her maiden name or
married name. The only children of Charles and Hannah that were
old enough to have been Minnie May's father or mother were (all
Cranmer) Ann Adell, Austin E., Joel D., L. Francis and Ella May.
I don't know if Ann Adell married or what her married name may have
been. I believe Ella May married a Wm. Stallard, so neither Ann Adell
nor Ella May were likely Minnie May's mother, unless Cofman was her
married name. That leaves one of the men as Minnie May's
I have been searching for over a year and would love to hear from
anyone who might have any information.
